Michael Kiesow Moore ('99) invites you to write peace into your life this summer

Hi there,

I'm a Hamline MFA alumnus (1999), and I'd like to let everyone know about a week-long class I'll be teaching on Madeline Island this summer. Here are the details:

Writing Peace into Your Life
August 8 to August 13, 2010
All levels / multi-genre

At the peaceful setting of Madeline Island we will spend a week exploring many aspects of peace. If you had peace in your life, what would it look like? How can you use your own inner peace to benefit your family, community, and world? The goal of this class is to have students consciously explore the nature of peace through writing. In the process, we can discover deep truths about ourselves and how we relate to the world.

We'll read and discuss writings by Thich Nhat Hanh, Mohandas Gandhi, and others. Guided meditations and walks in the beautiful island setting will return students to their own sense of inner peace. Students will pull from their own craft toolkits of poetry, creative nonfiction, or fiction, at all levels of writing.

As writers-and as caring human beings-we will meet at the crossroads of peace, creativity, and imagination to inspire hope for the future, deepen our connections to ourselves and others, and inspire each other to use our creativity for peace.
